Was diagnosed with thyroid disfunction at birth. Been managing my levels with levothyroxine ever since, as a child never really noticed symptoms of it apart from the obvious low BMI than kids my age. As I have hit 22 but now I'm 23. I have not felt myself. As mad as this may sound, I some mornings don't feel like I'm in my own body but as if I can see myself go about my daily routines. I feel dizzy and Sick most of the time. I get strange chest pains at the most random time. I am also starting to notice shortness of breath when walking I'm not the speediest of walkers either. Management at work has noticed my speed isn't as great as someone else's but yet to me it feels like I'm constantly rushing. I take 125mg of levothyroxine daily in a morning. I really don't feel myself. I've been to the doctors and they lowered my dose and I don't have an up to date TSH reading to hand. Any advice on what I can do to improve my health or just make up day bareable would help! x
